    bro’s dog at a 10 pack on GD tour and was lit for days

  3. sanchothehutt Says:

    @PB, i believe so. It was shown first week of my seminar on Gravity’s Rainbow, which is all about WWII and the V2 rocket, so that would make sense. It’s been a while, so I can’t be sure, but that sounds about right.

    Crazy book.

  4. butter Says:

    and his dog’s name was Miles

  5. KWL Says:

    already scheming to hit camden

    would have to rent a car or find a ride from syracuse. and find a place to stay on the cheap.

    i’m getting engaged the day after. can’t think of a better way to prep for that than 2 shows in the hood

  6. Willowed Says:

    Hey guys,
    I know a get a little sappy on here every once and a while (maybe it’s the Pinot) but I can’t believe what a place this has turned into. I have been posting here for two years or more (I know there have been peeps posting for much longer than that) e. I can’t remember. I used to post under my real name jon bailey. I used to make silly comments about David Hasselhoff and crap.
    This place has really turned into something special. I can’t wait to meet so many of you great souls out there on the road. I am sure AW (he is the best though and I so value his insight) will puke when he reads this but he/we are part of the wonderful magic that makes this place great. We have the “in the clouds” type posters (me) and we have the “keep it real” type posters (AW. and Mr. C). It all ads to the magic/glue that keeps this community new and vibrant.
    This is going to be a special year. I am glad I found this place many years ago when I was poking around the internet. I sometime look at the big picture of life if you will. We are here on this earth for such small/insignificant amount of time in the grand scheme of things. I value all the time I have here and I am so happy I will share some of it with you this year!
    Commence the Willowed basing for being a big sap.
    I love you guys…..In a totally brotherly way….and sisterly way too for some of you sistas out there!!

  13. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    I had a dog who was the personification of Gary N.

    Seriously, if there was a session going he would sniff it out and get in the circle next to whoever going to next. He always complained about no thumbs and pipes with carbs. He totally old schol with an original proto.

    Actually he was my brothers dog. Sorry for the misrepresentation.

  14. Willowed Says:

    Oh, no

    it turns into boiling fucking steam instantly

    AW, sorry to hear about your dog. I’m a sucker for my parents’ pets, and for the ones I used to have
